Pretty sure you'll pay the same anywhere for those. I'd buy where you get best shipping price. Just my experience from shopping around for same.

That’s what I thought. Was looking at shipping options as they seem to be the only “discount”

Also, they are having their 50th anniversary sale. 25 off 250 or 50 off 500. If you buy the 2 seats separately, that's a hundred dollars off with free shipping!

Check eBay. They have 15% off coupon today. 4wheelparts is selling some on there, you can save $90 but the coupon max discount is $100 off so you could only get 1 bucket today.. they have these one day coupons every few weeks it seems like

I have 3g seats in my race truck, they are wide. You sure you can center them to the steering wheel?

Hmm I will double check. They are going in my bronco build for NORRA. I think Boyd and Brian’s bronco are using 3g seats but will ask them to make sure. I planned on mounting the seats to the cage and center them that way.

The guys who raced our Stroppe in the 2010 NORRA race had 3G seats in it. I think they were centered OK but I don't recall for certain.

My bronco has normal beard super seats now which are considerable narrower, with the seats centered to the steering shaft which is in the stock location side to side, there is barely room for a 1.75 tube to come around the seat for the door opening. If that makes sense. Todd you have seen my bronco I'm talking about the tube running from shoulder area down to the A pillar accross the door opening.

OK - a configuration like that will probably be challenging with 3Gs. Our Stroppe has a wide bar at arm height but that's it.

The cage will be built around the seats and fuel cell. If that’s the case I think we accommodate them. I will talk to the cage builder.

Just to tie this one off - i decided to go with the Mastercraft Pro seats, after measuring a few times it did seem like it would be a squeeze and I need some room between the seats

In any case they should work out well, seem pretty comfortable sitting in them in my basement!
